The Team Description Paper (TDP) is a document submitted by each team as one of the qualification requirements. As a minimum requirement, the TDP must contain the height of the robot, the maximum diameter of its projection to the ground, and the maximum percentage of ball coverage. Some topics that TDPs cover include robot features and specifications, changes made since the last revision, and the team's current projects.
